First mentioned in 1148, the site stretches east of Appenheim along the Westerberg. The Hundertgulden received its present name in the 14th century, when large sums in Rhenish gold florins were paid for the best plots.
The steep slopes are oriented from southwest to south and lie between 160 and 235 meters above sea level. The soil consists of water-bearing limestone layers (terra fusca), which originated from the coral reefs of the tertiary primeval sea. An interplay of cool westerly winds and the warm exposure ensures a very long ripening period. In Hundertgulden, salty and punchy Rieslings characterized by limestone are created.VDP map & description
The Scharlachberg, located south of Bingen, has been one of the Grand Cru sites on the Rhine for centuries. First mentioned in a document in 1248 with the name "vocatur Scarlachen" ("called Scharlach"), it occupies a historically prominent role among German Riesling sites.
Separated from the Rhenish slate mountains by the course of the Nahe river, a unique soil formation formed 400 million years ago is found in Rheinhessen.
The south-facing steep slope is an almost solitary quartzite rock. Planted in terraces, the old vines take root on the iron oxide-rich (scarlet) red primary rock soil and produce great and complex Rieslings.VDP map & description
Located about 20 km south of the Rhine on the western border of the region, Heerkretz is one of the exceptional sites of Rheinhessen. At an altitude of up to 280 meters, the vines grow on the steep slope that slopes down to the southwest. The mineral-rich soil is interspersed with volcanic porphyry rock and thus ensures a unique wine style. Energetic Rieslings with great finesse and storage potential are produced here.
Driven by the idea and the challenge to cultivate Rieslings on exceptional terroir, a cooperation with our friends from the Wagner-Stempel winery was established in the great vineyards Siefersheimer Heerkretz and Binger Scharlachberg.VDP map & description
